It’s the natural order of things. Each year, Apple releases an incremental upgrade to the iPhone. While the California-based company made a radical decision and changed its course by releasing not one, but two devices at once, Apple now has a new pattern it has to follow. This time it’s changing its tune. Users who favor compact form factors over bigger screens are now eager to see to see the heavily anticipated iPhone 5se released. Now, it seems like the handset will be unveiled on March 22.
Among the latest in the rumour mill, there’s one from South Korea. Citing inside sources, UnderKG claims that the iPhone 5se will be launched on March 22. Previous rumours suggest that the company will release the 4-inch iPhone alongside the iPad Air 3 and an update to the Apple Watch on March 15, one week ahead of the latest claim.
However, Apple still hasn’t sent out press invites to the supposed product launch. As such, it’s always best to take any rumour with a grain of salt since it could be more of a speculation. Leaks on the other hand could be ways for a company to hype up their products, but we’re not seeing any dates at the moment for the iPhone 5se’s release date.
The iPhone 5se is speculated to feature an identical design to the iPhone 5s, albeit with rounded edges and extra curves that came with the iPhone 6 generation. The 4-inch iPhone may also come with either an A8 or an A9 chipset, and storage options will start at 32GB. Furthermore, it won’t have features such as the 3D touch and Live Photos, but it will make up for it with Always-On Siri. The handset should start at about $621 (US$450). Until Apple officially unveils the iPhone 5se, most of these are simply speculations that could be on point or off.
